Windows 7: Boost Windows 7 SP1 USB Storage Devices Performance by Increasing Maxi

Boost Windows 7 SP1 USB Storage Devices Performance by Increasing Maxi

Quote:

In some scenarios users will be able to gain a boost of performance from their USB storage devices if they increase the maximum transfer size from the default, Microsoft revealed.

This is why the Redmond company is now providing a hotfix designed to help customers get a bump in terms of the transfer size of their USB storage devices.

The software giant is calling KB 2581464 an update, but it´s only available for download from Microsoft Support and not served as an automated refresh through Windows Update.

Another MS SNAFU: The HotFix download page (which you get via an E-Mail after telling MS your email ID) requires a UserID and Password but the KB article does not say what this is. Therefore, it is impossible to download the fix.

Plus the KB article says there is no need to modify the registry, and then further down it tells you that you do have to modify it.

And they pay people to create stuff like this???

Why would they not have it set to 2MB to begin with?

Just keep refreshing the page or click the address bar and hit enter until you get a DL prompt. That's what I did

Note For some USB storage devices, performance can be improved if the maximum transfer size is increased from the default 64 KB. This update supports this change when the hardware vendor provides a device information file (INF) to set this value for the USB storage devices.

so i think that means it will only work if the Vendor gave drivers with the usb device? because most if not all have 3rd party usb flash drives that don't have inf/drivers with them... am i wrong?

Neither do I, before or after applying the hotfix. Are we supposed to create it as a new key?
